Ryan Reynolds Exits ‘Highlander’ Reboot

HighlanderThe reboot of Highlander has been one of the slowest gestating projects in recent memory and for over a year Ryan Reynolds had been attached to play the hero Connor MacLeod. The reboot has had a myriad of writers take a pass at it. Justin Lin was at one stage going to direct and more recently Juan Carlos Fresnadillo was taking that gig but that’s now gone too.

Well now the leading man has bid the flick farewell which puts this reboot right back in the starters blocks again.
